(Newser) – The Internet—and Facebook in particular—is making it hard to break up and stay broken up, a new survey suggests. Nearly 60% of people stay Facebook friends with their exes after the split, and 74% admit to Googling them, the New York Post reports. One-third say they've had sex with their ex after reconnecting online. "We're seeing this pattern where it's so much easier to reconnect with an ex, where in the past, they were out of sight, out of mind," says the CEO of survey sponsor YourTango.com.
